Yasutomo Authentic Chinese Black Ink 6oz
This black Sumi ink is made specifically for Chinese art techniques. For painting, sumi-e, calligraphy and drawing. Yasutomo Authentic Chinese Black Ink is fade resistant and water re-soluble. Available in Black as well as Ultra Black which has almost double the carbon. Available in convenient 180ml bottles.
These inks come in two shades. CM is a super dense black ink and CY is less dense for delicate washes. The unique adhesive formulation of the inks allows for increased stability, however they will reconstitute in water. When these inks have dried on absorbent papers, they may be wet mounted. This is the use of a water-based adhesive to bond the artwork to the mounting surface, without bleeding or smearing.
Both inks will mix with Chinese watercolors for interesting effects. They both have a convenient lid where the cap comes off the side of the larger cap for more control and fewer spills.
Because these are both pigment based inks, rather than dye based inks, they should not be used in refillable pens. These inks are not acrylic inks, nor are there any acrylic properties or ingredients in them.
These inks conform to ASTM D-4236.
